Centre for Sight First in the United Kingdom to Utilize TrueVision® 3D Visualization During Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery
Leading surgeon Sheraz Daya debuts advanced laser techniques and TrueVision 3D System® during educational event for UK ophthalmologists
East Grinstead, West Sussex, UK (June 13, 2013) – TrueVision®
3D Surgical collaborated with internationally renowned eye surgeon Sheraz M. Daya, MD, FACP, FACS, FRCS(Ed), FRCOphth, to deliver a ground-breaking live educational event featuring multiple advanced technologies. Over the course of the daylong event, Dr. Daya, founder of Centre for Sight in 1996, performed four laser cataract procedures while the live 3D surgical view was streamed to the audience of visiting surgeons for an enhanced understanding of the angles and tissue depth involved in this newest form of cataract surgery.
Dr. Daya and several expert colleagues from the UK and Europe provided the audience with clinical and technical updates on the latest methods used during laser cataract surgery, as well as an open discussion about the incorporation of new technology into clinical practice. Surgical techniques, patient communication, staff education and medical economics in today's economy were all discussed as part of the program designed to provide eye surgeons with a peer-to-peer forum for advanced cataract surgery.
"Overall, it was a tremendous event that came together due to the efforts of the Centre for Sight surgical staff and our wonderful patients, along with the support of TrueVision," said Dr. Daya. "The feedback we have received from surgeons attending the event has been very positive and we look forward to future events that enable our colleagues to best appreciate the details of these new techniques in cataract surgery."
TrueVision's Clinical Director, David Friess, OD, FAAO, was on-site prior to and during the event and said that "it was terrific to see how Dr. Daya continues to be a leading innovator by adopting new technology for his patients and then sharing his experience with his colleagues in the UK."
